party is divided and too weak to stop him in terms of doing what he wants to do. perhaps john boehner doesn't have the storm control and that will help in the second term. >> john: many would agree that john boehner has a tender hold at best on his caucus. >> absolutely. and you know, we talked about this last week when i came on, john. but you have a very divided political conference one divided between republicans that are in blue states, states voting for president obama and red states states that voted or mitt romney, and you can see the president attempting a divide and conquer to get policies through the hours in the next two to another years. >> john: it may be the first of the new term will that become what healthcare was in his first team he'll use tons of political capital just to get it done. >> i'm not sure that he will. even if that's what he wants some senate democrats are pulling back on the ambitious parts of that, the focus on the universal background checks, which a lot of people agree with. while obama has been bold and up front about this, i think it's something th
majority are. you mention this issue about john boehner having brought up two bills so far this month. the fiscal cliff and the sandy relief bill without a majority of his majority behind it. if he brought up a vote on this issue, would his speakership be at risk? >> yes. it probably would be. and then, of course, there is a debt ceiling vote. now you hear a lot of republicans making noises about backing down from the debt ceiling fight. it is interesting by the way, i know we're not here to talk about that. it is interesting how the conventional wisdom has shifted on that. >> jennifer: quickly too. >> so quickly. just another sign of the shifting sands. it all hinges on how public opinion turns. and you know, is the president going to go out on the stump? is he going to go out and barnstorm the country for his proposals? how much political capital is he going to put into it? if he really builds up public support for the proposals and public support grows and if they feel pressure, he'll bring a vote. >> >> jennifer: just to take you back to that -- not the fiscal cliff, the debt ceil
the gop should embrace obama. so if you are talking to john boehner or mitch mcconnell, you will have sort of a different message to them. i don't consider you a liberal democrat or a right-wing republican. right? politics aside. >> i am sort of down the middle. so why would you argue that thegol g.o.p. should embrace obama? >> i didn't write that headline. my friends wrote it but the gist of this article is, is that if you look at everything obama did or most of the things he did over the past four years, his big policies, he borrowed them from past republican presidents. i went all the way back to nixon. nix on raised taxes on the rich cut them on the poor. ronald reagan backed an assault weapons ban. ronald reagan was the first president to support what we now call cap and trade. ronald reagan. when i tweeted that yesterday, when i wrote about it, of course, i got bombarded with the usual, oh, you are just full of it, bravenld u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. def -- brand u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. people don't get it. r
. >> john: a few moments ago, speaker of the house john boehner entered, the most tan man in washington, d.c. in january. john mccain. >> jennifer: john mccain talking with dianne feinstein, i'm sure about gun control. cutting a deal right there. >> john: it is rather unseasonably warm today. i'm thankful for that for the folks who are there. >> jennifer: tammy baldwin. >> john: yesterday i was shocked at how warm it was. a lot of folks were expressing confusion as to why the president was sworn in yesterday. the constitution requires, of course, the president be sworn in on january 20th. since federal buildings and courthouses are closed on sunday, the ceremony is still scheduled for today on the 21st which happens to be dr. king's holiday. the president's second term officially began at 12:00 noon eastern time yesterday. >> led by kevin mccarthy. >> jennifer: john dingell. god bless him. longest serving member of congress. over 50 years. his father served in congress, too. he has it in his blood. >> john: this is like the oscars for political. >> macy's day parade coverage. instead of bl
completed an evaluation of that same keystone pipeline. john boehner had this to say about it. he said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there is no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay this project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. i mean, that's putting it right on the president. >> here is the reality about the keystone pipeline that comes from canada to the united states to deliver oil. that oil is going to somewhere no matter what. this is becoming an ideological touchstone in washington but it doesn't mean a whole lot. that oil will find its way to china, the united states, to europe, wherever it's needed whether the pipeline comes to the united states or it goes across canada and off the coast of vancouver british columbia. this dc fight has very little meaning in the larger picture. >> michael: but those dc fights change the way we talk about it. >> they do. >> michael: it will be the centerpiece for however long for a moment or months of conversatio
obama not to tear up. >> jennifer: or john boehner for pete's sake. >> right. and it is heard breaking and our leaders are human beings, and i think it's awesome that we recognize them as human beings, and it's those human reactions that make me feel good about the fact that the decisions they make will be guided by both the brain, and the heart, the right way to do it. >> jennifer: yeah, you are exactly right about that. you put it so well. >> i think for her -- i think -- >> jennifer: go ahead. >> i was just going to say -- i -- i don't think anybody thinks hillary clinton is weak. so i think when you have a human moment like that it doesn't take away from her standing in our world at all. >> jennifer: i agree. the other person who is sort of a heart-centered person in the administration is joe biden. >> yeah. >> jennifer: and they are both -- joe and hilary very close and of course potentially competitors in a 2016 run. do you think that would actually happen? would one of them step back for the other? because they are very dear friends? >> here is the one thing
